What a gorgeous weekend we had in Chicago! I hope you were able to take advantage of the spring sun, while brunching at some of our favorite patios.

This week, we are looking forward to Cinco de Mayo celebrations, Chi-Town playoffs (Hawks & Bulls!), and Mother’s Day brunch specials.


Tonight, the James Beard Awards are making their Chicago debut. If you weren’t able to snag a ticket to the chef all star event, we suggest you head to Intro. Rich Melman is receiving the James Beard Lifetime Achievement award, and as part of the celebration, Intro is hosting a dinner series co-hosted by Saveur Magazine. Available until May 9th, the Rising Star Chef Dinner Series features Ari Taymor (Alma), Jessica Langey (Manresa), Intro chefs CJ Jacobson and Erik Anderson, along with Michael Laiskonis. A portion of ticket proceeds benefit the James Beard Foundation and range between $95 – $125.


Bitches love a reason to indulge in gourmet bites and cocktails mid-week. Upgrade your Cinco de Mayo plans and attend an exclusive Latin inspired tasting menu created by Chef Charles Webb at the DL Loft. Finalize your Cinco de Mayo plans and join us! A few tickets are still available for $80/person. Email for tickets.
